    2017 PIMPI Winter Series

     

     


    The third exhibition in the 2017 PIMPI Winter Series takes its name from the title track of Sade’s concept album Lovers Rock.  This “Lovers Rock“, is an homage to radical, transformative self love.

     

     

    As pathways and platforms to perform and engage in the act of self love, artists explore, reclaim and unpack the politics of the gaze, unapologetically centralising the brown body, in the frame, in the centre; creating visibility where it didn’t exist.
    Lovers Rock taps into the necessary re-authoring of the narrative of brown bodies, unburdening the language of our curves and textures, our rhythms and shade.

     

     

    Practices in Self-Love is the exhibition’s public programme event;
    it combines a unique pop-up shop of local plus size designer and exhibiting artist, Melissa Cole with workshops and discussion on channeling self love and practicing self care.  All welcome!
